GREENFIELD, Ind. (AP) - The Indiana Department of Education is trying to make it easier for students to keep up with their reading during their summer vacation.
The DOE is making 3,000 books available online through its website in a partnership with MyON. The reading program matches students' interests and reading levels with content to personalize their learning.
The program is being promoted through Indiana's Hoosier Family of Readers summer reading initiative.
New Palestine High School English teacher Caroline Clayton tells the Daily Reporter that summertime is the perfect time for students to get immersed in a good book. She says reading keeps students' brains active and helps open them to broader horizons.
